Base Camp Pelagic

Both Pelagics rafted up Antarctica prior to the sale of Pelagic Australis to Greenpeace

With the sale of Pelagic Australis to Greenpeace our fleet consists of the tried and tested original Pelagic and the newly built Pelagic 77, Vinson of Antarctica, designed by Tony Castro, which has evolved from Skip's more than 30 years experience in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean. In 2024 a second Pelagic 77, sistership to Vinson of Antarctica, will join the fleet

Vinson of Antarctica can take up to 10 passengers and 4 crew in considerably greater comfort and speed than previous vessels in the fleet. The vessel is equipped with the latest satellite communications which facilitates running online and store and forward filming projects. The vessel has an MCA (Marine and Coastguard Agency from the UK) certificate for carrying passengers and is CE marked. Vinson of Antarctica is for charter at 6000 GBP per day.  Read more about Pelagic 77 Vinson of Antarctica >>
